Our eyes see the world in visible light. But this light is only a small part of the entire range of possibilities in the electromagnetic spectrum; by far the greatest part is invisible to our eyes. The radiance in these other parts of the spectrum always provides additional, not conventionally "visible" information. Using the infrared part of the spectrum lets us see with other eyes and thereby understand more of the world, since many objects normally invisible for us thereby become "visible".
We'll investigate the characteristics and possibilities of infrared radiation and use very modern high-tech equipment to make the invisible visible. Afterwards in a discussion we'll try to understand what appear to be mysterious phenomena.
Fawns have a guardian angel - infrared technology
A lot of other things can be done with infrared technology, and in numerous situations we can really benefit from it.
With infrared we view the world in a different light
Follow in the steps of Sir Frederik William Herschel, who discovered infrared radiation in 1800. With our help you can conduct his historic experiment just the way he did it, and discover infrared radiation for yourself. But experimenting with highly sensitive infrared equipment is just as fascinating. Find out how it works and get acquainted with some of the applications. With an infrared camera you can even turn thermal radiation into visible images. You can discover your world from an entirely different perspective.
